I fancied doing this painting mainly because of the dark Trees. That 4x4 ( I think it is a 4x4)is coming up a hill from around the bend. I have added a new colour to my palette now, sap green, and I love it. I haven`t used this colour before but I`m looking forward to really trying it out this coming Sunday Plein air.
I started painting around 1990 and loved it straight away.
I started with watercolour,and then after about 15 years I moved to Oils and acrylics. I still paint the odd watercolour to keep my hand in so to speak. I love impressionism. The only time I use detail is when I paint portraits. Otherwise it is my interpretation of the subject.
I am retired but still find it hard to find time to paint. I reckon I can manage to do a painting about three times a week.
Originally I was a Motor Mechanic. Then, for the eighteen years leading up to my retirement, I worked
for Barclays bank.
